National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day

Everyone loves a good cookie, and it is only fitting that this tasty autumnal treat gets its dedicated day. That’s right, on November 15th, many will celebrate National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day.

What Is National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day?

A fresh batch of cookies always gives a warming feeling, but few have a smell as inviting as Spicy Hermit Cookies on a chilly day. With an old-fashioned recipe, they are flavored with spices like cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg. There is a festive feeling to it, and with raisins, nuts, and even dates, they have plenty going on.

They originated in New England and are thought to date back to 1880. This is when the first record can be found in the cookbook “Champlain Valley Book of Recipes,” published by the ladies of Trinity Church.¬†Because of their warming nature and familiar smell, these cookies are guaranteed to have a positive effect on anyone lucky enough to try one.

How To Observe National Spicy Hermit Cookie Day

Why not try them the way all cookies should be enjoyed – with a glass of milk or a warm cup of cocoa? The main thing is, you need to make a fresh batch of your own. You can invite friends over especially and make them together or call your mom for her special recipe.

Whatever you choose to do, it can be a good excuse to try an autumnal treat, stick on a feel-good movie, and enjoy a handful of spicy cookies. Use the hashtag #SpicyHermitCookieDay to spread the word, and don’t forget to post plenty of pictures of your warm cookies on November 15th.
